Very recently (4 entries ago) we profiled an adventurer/backpacker named Doug Slack from Chicago who roared up to the hostel on a state-of-the-art 600 c.c. Yahmaha road rocket! The entry is titled “No Slack”.
He was fornerly an avid long-distance cyclist but those excursions often rquired months of his time away fron home. So he has opted for a quicker (much quicker) mode of transport.
The reason for this “update” of so recent an entry is that Doug left a nice comment to the entry that he liked our hostel allthough he was the “oldest backpacker” in residence!
Sorry Doug. Not even close!
I will admit there were younger backpackers here at the time; but none of them were roaring around on motocycles!
We’ve had several other travelers like Doug arrive here on motorbikes. There was J9hn a retired lawyer from alaska who rode all the way from Anchorage to California via out hostel in Toronto.
There was Freddy, a retired boadcaster and former soldier.
Those are just two examples of other motorcyclists around Dougs age! There are alsoo quite a number of octogenarians who have stayed here (but they didn’t arrive on bikes, I’ll grant you!)
